Are you getting a good sleep?
1 in 3 French people suffer from sleep disorders. It's time to sleep peacefully and take the initiative in the face of this troubling remark. FizzUp tells you all about sleep and how to improve it with a complete chronological checklist.
What is good sleep?
A good night's sleep can vary from person to person. Whether you spend more time in the evening or in the morning, listen to your own chronological pattern. In fact, it is better to look at the number of your sleep cycles (in a slice of about an hour and a half) than to limit yourself to a time that may not be your bedtime, the whole thing is to be regular at your own pace.
Good sleep is also sleep that should be sufficient in quantity. An adult should sleep an average of 7-9 hours (athletes are at 10 in the morning!). You should close your eyes all the time without interruption.
To feel comfortable in the morning, your sleep should be of sufficient duration and quality. Start by asking yourself two questions:
Do I always get between 7 and 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep? (eyes closed)
When I wake up, do I feel good/energy?
If not, remember that sleep is an essential component of a healthy rhythm of life and appropriate for longevity. These components can be summarized into four main pillars:
- Do regular physical activity
- Cover your daily nutritional needs with high quality foods
- Maintaining social ties with peers
- Pay attention to your recovery, mainly thanks to sleep
